One of Those Days All Week by Mad Maudlin (PG)

Show: SGA

Rec Category: SGA humour
Characters: Rodney McKay, John Sheppard, Teyla Emmagen, Ronon Dex, Jennifer Keller, Richard Woolsey
Categories: gen, humour
Warnings: Drug use, kidnapping
Author on LJ: mad_maudlin
Author's Website: Mad_Maudlin at Ao3
Link: One of Those Days All Week

Why This Must Be Read:Writing hurt-comfort/whump for Rodney McKay has its own challenges in his, err, unique personality, shall we say? - because neither Stoic Heroics nor Beautiful Suffering fit at all...

But Mad Maudlin gleefully exploits Rodney's gifts for creative panicking and running off at the mouth, for a stream-of-consciousness piece that has him captured and roughed up and forced to work pretty much nonstop until rescued... trust me, it's way way funnier than it sounds, because it's so.... Rodney.

"That Which is Broken" by Sholio (not rated by the author, my guess: Teen And Up Audiences)

Show: SGA
Rec Category: Team
Characters: John Sheppard, Rodney McKay, Ronon Dex, Teyla Emmagan, OCs
Pairings: none
Categories: gen
Warnings: none
Author on LJ: sholio
Author's Website: City on the Ocean's Edge
Link: That Which is Broken by Sholio

Summary by the author:
Following the events of "Trinity", Teyla has a plan to repair the rift in her team ... but it may come at a terrible cost.

This story won in the 2006 Stargate Fan Awards for Best Episode Tag. Funny, I thought I had this one already recommended but I can't find it in the archived recs.

Teyla's plan backfires horribly and Rodney has to save the day, John and everything. *g*
Great, inventive story, in which everything fits perfectly together. This story just flows. Action, adventure, character background, arguments, bickering, angst, and a happy end, all written by an author who knows their art, what more do you want? If you're looking for a long, captivating read - that's the one for you.

"Team Spirit" by Penknife (Teen And Up Audiences)

Characters: John Sheppard, Rodney McKay, Ronon Dex, Teyla Emmagan
Pairings: none
Categories: gen
Warnings: none
Author on LJ: penknife
Author's Website: on AO3
Link: Team Spirit by Penknife

Summary by the author:
Rodney thinks that bonding experiences should probably not involve his bathtub.

Set in S4, after Teyla and John clashed, Teyla is suspended from team missions because of her pregnancy. This is the aftermath of a misson gone wrong told from Rodney's POV and pretty amusing. In humorous stories I often find that the comical part is somewhat overdone, steering the story right into the realm of comedy. This one balances skillfully on the edge. It is funny, with a pinch of insightful perceptions of Rodney, which shows how well he knows his teammates, though without turning the characters straight into comedy figures.

With Wings so Bright They Burn by lavvyan (R)

Show: SGA

Rec Category: Crossover
Characters: John Sheppard, Rodney McKay, Elizabeth Weir, Carson Beckett, Teyla Emmagen, Aiden Ford
Pairings: Sheppard/McKay
Categories: Slash, Crossover
Warnings: Mention past abuse/medical experimentation, off-screen cannon character death
Author on LJ: lavvyan
Author's Website: Fic Index on LJ
Link: With Wings so Bright They Burn

Why This Must Be Read: A crossover with X-Men, this story is a fun read told from John's point of view during the early part of season one. In this AU crossover world, the Atlantis expedition was (mostly) made up of mutants. No X-Men characters actually make an appearance, but I like that they are peripherally still in the story by being mentioned in passing as people who exist. And the more real connection one of them ends up having to the story is, I think, rather clever. Even if you don't know X-Men very much, you should definitely still check this story out.

Characters: Samantha Carter, Jonas Quinn, Jack O'Neill
Categories: gen, humor, Jack and Sam friendship
Warnings: none
Author on LJ: unknown
Author's Website: Nift at FF.net

Why This Must Be Read: Sam is delightful in this short story, as she helps their new resident alien find a method of recreation and handles the subsequent conversation with her CO with aplomb. I love her sense of humor, Jonas' enthusiasm for new things, and Jack's wry acknowledgment of who's really responsible for the whole thing.

Rec Category: Kate Heightmeyer (as therapist)
Characters: Kate Heightmeyer, John Sheppard
Categories: Gen
Warnings: None
Author on LJ: sholio
Author's Website: See the AO3
Link: Anger Management on AO3

Why This Must Be Read: This is another story about Kate carefully negotiating therapy with Sheppard, who's being particularly mistrustful and difficult. It's about her once again having to adapt and handle things differently than she used to on Earth. I like the unvarnished portrayal of Sheppard, and that Kate's skillful, and insightful. It's an episode tag to 'Common Ground' and 'Phantoms', set after 'Phantoms' - a short piece, but it rings very true.

Wry, dry, and ultimately bittersweet.

Romancing Rodney (Or, Ronon Dex Gets His Man) by msgordo

Show: SGA

Pairings: Ronon/Rodney
Categories: slash, humour, Harlequin
Warnings: None
Author's Website: msgordo (kipplemine) at Ao3
Link: Romancing Rodney (Or, Ronon Dex Gets His Man)

Why This Must Be Read: Oh dear oh dear oh dear... this was the first time I dipped a small, wary and wildly bemused toe into Ronon Dex/Rodney McKay slash, and oh dear oh dear oh dear... I loved it. It's pure farce, taking both of them (and everyone else) almost to Keystone levels of comedy, and all the more hysterically funny for it. Ronon kicking the whole thing off by asking an adorably appalled Sheppard for permission to woo is enough to make me fall over giggling as it is, but then when we find out where - and from whom - Ronon gets his ideas about romancing Earth-style... and McKay's oblivious, perfectly him reaction to being wooed... just read it and laugh.

Why This Must Be Read: So sue me, I am a total sucker for Domesticity in Space... and there aren't nearly enough about how Our Heroes actually adapted to life in this alien city (or, umm, didn't :) Domenica's stories tend to focus on the military aspects of the expedition, and by making the all too plausible assumption that the Marines were handed the job of feeding themselves and their scientific charges, she weaves a simple, not laugh-out-loud but drily humorous and quite endearing look at one of those domestic aspects that I love so much... and her John is simply wonderful :)

Author on LJ: rageprufrock

Link: Cartography by Touch on AO3

Why This Must Be Read: This is a seriously great set of stories about John going through psychotherapy, as Kate helps him manage his defenses and gradually deal with a mission-related trauma that he's suppressing and denying, all the while trying to navigate his relationship with Rodney. This is honestly one of the best depictions of psychotherapy I've ever read, anywhere, and the metaphors for Sheppard's healing process are powerful.
Also, there's a companion-story with Rodney's POV: History of Maps, so I'm reccing them as a set.

Agent Afloat Atlantis by Mhalachai (PG-13)

Categories: Gen, Crossover, H/C, Action/Adventure
Warnings: None
Author on LJ: mhalachaiswords
Author's Website: on Wraithbait, Twisting the Hellmouth, AO3...
Link: Agent Afloat Atlantis

Why This Must Be Read: I hadn't even realized Mhalachai had written this story when I began reading it, but when I finally took note of the author's name, it really didn't surprise me. Mhalachai writes exactly the sort of crossovers I love: inventive, plausible and seamless.

This is a crossover with NCIS, told mostly from the perspective of Ziva David, who gets assigned to Atlantis as an agent afloat (much like the title indicates). Ziva's characterization is perfect and she's definitely an interesting choice of character through whose eyes to see Atlantis and its crew. Especially since John obviously doesn't really know what he's supposed to do with her at first. Now all of that is great and I found myself enjoying the story immensely, but then Mhalachai decided to take it one step further and bring the story back to Earth and tie it to NCIS in a way that's an absolutely wonderful blend of both shows.

Categories: gen, humour

Why This Must Be Read: A unabashed, unsubtle and gloriously gleeful sendup of purple prose :) by someone who has clearly read even more of it than me, and of 'Mirror Mirror' knockoffs by someone who recognises all too well how utterly ridiculous Evil for Evil's sake can be... especially with heroes that, to be honest, just aren't that good at the villainy involved... this is very much a "I wish I'd thought of that! - except that she did it so much better" piece, and I love it.

Original story on Bead's LJ: They Do Not Teach This Stuff In Med School

Why This Must Be Read: This month I'm reccing stories featuring Kate Heightmeyer in her role as a therapist. The show didn't treat her well in this respect - I don't think she came across as very believable, and there was all the Hollywoody hypnosis stuff. So, as ever, "apply fanfic". These stories show Kate as she should have been - a skilled therapist. Due to the nature of SGA fandom, they mostly feature John as the patient, and sometimes Rodney. This one's a favourite - it's from early in Beadattitude's Checkmate 'Verse (in which John's been transformed into a small black cat) - in which Kate's skill crosses species barriers. It's a bang-on portrayal of Sheppard, and Sheppard-as-cat, astute and amusing.

Planet of the Dinosaurs by Penumbris (NC-17)

Show: SGA
Rec Category: Alternate Universe
Characters: Rodney McKay, Acastus Kolya, John Sheppard, Elizabeth Weir, Team, Other Geni characters, Other SGA characters
Pairings: McKay/Kolya
Categories: Cannon AU, Slash, Action/Adventure, Angst, H/C
Warnings: Angst, dubcon (sort of)
Author on LJ: unknown
Author's Website: Penumbris
Link: on Wraithbait or on AO3

Why This Must Be Read: I actually thought long and hard whether or not to rec this story. The reason for this is because the authors (yes, Penumbris is a team of two co-writers, Davechicken and Shadow Side) sometimes slide into the oddest dialogue structure I've ever seen. It's not that the dialogue itself is bad, because the two of them write good dialogue, which just makes it all the stranger when each individual line of dialogue is suddenly its own paragraph... Maybe it's a result of two people writing? I honestly don't know, but it does sometimes make following a conversation between two people confusing and takes you out of the story when you have to go back to figure out who's speaking.

However, if you can get past the odd dialogue structure, this story is amazing. The plot is original, exciting, and just the right mixture of angsty and humourous, while also giving depth to the characters involved. More importantly, the unusual pairing works incredibly well without compromising either character. Kolya doesn't suddenly become nice and Rodney doesn't become evil. Nor does John suddenly become friends with Kolya either.

I've added the 'dubcon' warning to this fic, because in the beginning of their relationship Kolya is in a position of power over Rodney. However, Rodney is an enthusiastic participant with very little persuasion necessary -- hence the 'sort of'.

Shadow Side also wrote a prelude to this story, Prelude in A, which gives more background to Kolya as well as a more in-depth peek at Geni society. It's not necessary for enjoying Planet of the Dinosaurs, but there are quite a few references to the prelude in the story. And it's a good story in its own right, so worth checking out for that alone.

"Skipping the Angles" by Tepring (aka T'Pring) (not rated, my guess - PG-13 for violence)

Show: SGA

Characters: John Sheppard, Rodney McKay, Ronon Dex, Teyla Emmagan, various OCs
Pairings: none
Categories: gen
Warnings: none
Author on LJ: tepring
Author's Website: none
Link: Skipping the Angles by Tepring

Summary by the author:
Sheppard and Team cross the locals on an anarchistic, violent planet and find themselves caught up in the Clan's battle for leadership. John is injured, friends are not what they seem, and the jumper won't be back for twelve more hours. Cue action, knives and thugs.

Why This Must Be Read:

What, the summary isn't enough to lure you in? ;-)

Seriously, it's a joy to watch and assess team Sheppard through the eyes of one of the planet's natives.

The story itself is a tightly woven action/adventure story in which the team tries to find a missing member of Atlantis' military in the midst of violent, gang-ruled society. T'Pring is such a talented author. She brings the dark, dangerous atmosphere - in which one wrong glance can land you in a lethal fight - to vibrating life. You can *taste* the danger. T'pring is absolutely perfect in writing this kind of scenes and I dare to say she is better than a lot of professional authors out there.

Number the Stars by nagi_schwarz (G)

Show(s): Stargate Atlantis/Stargate SG1/Thoughtcrimes/Numb3rs

Rec Category: Crossovers
Characters: Freya/Amita, Brendan/John, Rodney, Teyla, et al
Pairings: Amita Ramanujan/Charlie Eppes
Categories: hurt/comfort (emotional & physical), paranormal power (telepathy), angst, team dynamics
Warnings: secret-keeping, reading minds without permission
Author on LJ: ficsco_and_nagi
Link: Number the Stars

Why this must be read: This might sound confusing, but follow along. Freya McAllister (Thoughtcrimes) was recruited by the NSA because she can read minds. They trained her and partnered her up with Brendan Dean. They have the sweetest platonic relationship ever. They are also played by the actors who also portrayed Amita Ramanujan (Numb3rs) and John Sheppard (SGA), and those are the identities they assume when they’re sent to infiltrate the SGC.

What nagi_schwarz has done that I really love is reinterpret life on Atlantis with the inclusion of someone who can read minds, an ability that only a very few people are privy to. If you thought John’s team operated well before, wait till you see them now!

Also, I usually limit myself to McShep fics, but the relationship between Freya and Brendan is way too cute, and possibly a little co-dependent. They have shared experiences and in-jokes that the others don’t understand, and rely heavily on each other for grounding when things get crazy. They would do literally anything for each other, but romance doesn't figure in it at all, which is actually kind of refreshing.

This ‘verse contains some strictly Thoughtcrimes/Numb3rs crossovers, as well as one installment that crosses over with Nagi’s own Foxtrot series, which is itself a crossover with Dollhouse. (Queen of the crossovers, anyone?)

PS – If you’d like to check out Thoughtcrimes, which I believe was a pilot for a series that never came to be, you can find the whole movie here on YouTube.

Pairings: none
Categories: gen
Warnings: none
Author on LJ: sholio
Author's Website: City on the Ocean's Edge
Link "The Light of a Fading Sun" by Sholio

Author's notes:
This story is somewhat darker and heavier than what I normally write. Just so you know. But if you've read my other stories, you also know how much I love writing friendship ... so keep that in mind, too.

Why This Must Be Read:
I don't want to give away too much and spoil the story. It's an AU-story, revolving around the events on Doranda and developing into an unexpected direction. It has very interesting team dynamics which are pretty dark and depressing in the beginning (see author's notes on that) but then things happen and it changes the relationships within the team. To tell you why and how would give away too much.
The team-related theme is embedded in a thrilling adventure-plot that easily could have been an actual episode and also serves as a catalyst for the change of the team-dynamics.
A long and engrossing read that is well worth hanging on through the somewhat dark first part.

Why This Must Be Read: From the first reference to Dr. Daniel Jackson (1964-2002, 2004-2060) you will start grinning at the sheer hilarity of this fantastic send up of the many, many mistakes that inevitably creep into any attempt to understand history without the proper references. It's great fun to see how a 22nd century historian misinterprets so much of what we understand ourselves, even if the humor is bittersweet sometimes!

Fig Newton - Pay No Attention to the Tok'ra Behind the Curtain (G)

Show: SG1
Rec Category: humour, friendship
Characters: Daniel Jackson, Jack O'Neill, Samantha Carter, Teal'c, Anise
Het/Slash/Gen: Gen
Author on LJ: here

Link: Pay No Attention to the Tok'ra Behind the Curtain

Why this must be read: That moment in tangent where Daniel claims (he has reason!!!) to be The Great and Powerful Oz really cries out to be explored... so here it is.

Jack O'Neill isn't the only one with a total weakness for Oz references (see icon :) I literally squealed when Daniel did it, and squealed even louder when I read this story. Not just for the gleeful way the Oz bits are seeded into the world Our Heroes are visiting, the wonderful characterisation (Our Heroes all showing their canon sillier sides - and Teal'c prevaricating is just beautiful), the Munchkins yellow notreallybrickroad, and Daniel's beloved chocolate bars. Because there's My Favourite Tok'ra, too...

Daniel licked his lips. "I asked about the yellow sand on the path," he offered. "Their new ruler lives in the capital city, but he ordered it shortly after he arrived on the planet. It actually leads all the way to the capital, and -"

"Daniel." Jack glared at him.

With his gaze suddenly focused on the cuff of his sleeve, Daniel said rapidly, "They call him Meta Setak."

"Thank you, Daniel. That's very helpful. Could you give us the English version now?"

Daniel actually shuffled his feet a little. "Thgrtnpwrfl," he muttered.

"What was that?"

Teal'c allowed his face to show surprise. "That is, indeed, the right translation?" he asked. "I was sure I had misheard."

Read My Lips by nagi_schwarz (mostly M, with some E)

Show(s): Stargate Atlantis/Stargate SG1

Rec Category: Crossovers
Pairing(s): John/Rodney, Evan/Jonathan (clone!Jack)
Characters: John, Rodney, Evan, Radek, Carson, etc.
Categories: emotional hurt/comfort, physical impairment, pining, angst
Warnings: John’s violently tragic backstory, Patrick Sheppard being awful
Author on LJ: ficsco_and_nagi
Link: Read My Lips

Why this must be read: This is an Atlantis-based AU that has one major difference from canon: John Sheppard is a deaf mathematician. He and Rodney have the best meeting ever, he proves himself just as necessary to the expedition as he did when he was a Major, and he has a terrible, horrible backstory. (Spoiler: he wasn’t born deaf)

I love how John’s physical impairment alters canon events, and changes the way the expedition members relate to him. And I love that at the core of himself John is just the same as he always was, ready to do what’s necessary to protect the people he loves.

As always, nagi_schwarz does a wonderful job with the variety of POVs she employs to fill out this 'verse and make it work so well. She's especially adept at writing Evan as John's put-upon translator, and Jonathan as the tortured clone who has to build a whole new life for himself. Is there anything she can't write in this fandom? Answer: no! ::grins::
